Here is why my lawn looks so terrible: Because the soil is bad.
SEE? Like I told Sweetie, and I’m telling you, it’s not that I don’t do any real yard work, and it’s not that my annual lawn budget is about $4.00, and it’s certainly not that my total extent of lawn-care knowledge amounts to “barely being able to avoid being stung to death by bees.”
It’s that the soil in our area is terrible.
That’s my conclusion, at least, after years of working to turn my lawn into a beautiful area where I and the kids and Sweetie and wildlife will want to hang out and ending up with what appears to be a plant graveyard: bad soil.
I concluded that after watching the Professor across the street work on HIS lawn, which is a perfectly immaculate vision of grass and trees and flowers. One of his secrets is this thing he’s got, the Scotts® Snap® Spreader System.
The Snap Spreader System is this little doohickey that lets him spread his fertilizer or weedkiller or supplements or whatever easily and with no mess or improper amounts. Like Scott says, “just Snap, Lock and Go! To get a great lawn in a ---- Snap®!”
What can I say? I like slogans.
Anyway, his Snap Spreader System is a big reason why his lawn looks good and my lawn is going to be burned by villagers carrying torches – but that’s not the only basis I have for getting my own Spreader System; I’m also hoping to get some of the prizes Scotts is giving away in their Scotts® Snap perks on Facebook. All I (or you) have to do is "like" Scotts ® Facebook page for the chance to win some great prizes.
So THIS year might finally be the year my lawn gets going and stops making me look bad in front of the neighbors, which is good because I’m getting tired of having to use the secret tunnel to get out of the neighborhood.
